Logan shared a statement about the film, stating that his objective was to develop a film that honors queerness.
I have grown up with horror movies as long as I remember seeing monsters represent the other, and as a gay kid I felt a sense of connection with those characters who were different, banned, or forbidden.
I wanted to create a film that reflects queerness, with characters that I never saw when I was young. I hope that when people walk away from the film, they will remember how incredible love these kids have for each other and how that love must be protected and celebrated.
